What does employee self-service software do?

Employee self-service software provides your people with the power to own their own HR data, manage their holiday and sickness requests, and conduct simple HR tasks by themselves to save time, reduce errors and ensure compliance.

What are the benefits of an employee self-service platform?

If your business is growing and you have no qualified HR professional in the company, or more admin than your HR lead can handle, then you need to ensure your people and managers have the tools needed to assume the role of HR from an admin perspective. Here are the top benefits of an employee self-service system:

  • Boost employee engagement and reduce staff turnover
  • Reduce HR admin and save time
  • Minimize risk and data errors
  • Be HR compliant
  • Increase employee wellbeing

Onboarding, consistent every time

Manage your vacancies in People HR and your potential candidates can apply for your job vacancy, carry out a video interview and upon getting the job, commence their onboarding – all from their personal device. And with eSignatures, they can sign the relevant documentation such as contracts and Right to Work without the need of paper, printers and scanners.

Your new starter can receive friendly welcome emails and notifications to guide them through their induction i.e. automatically sending a welcome pack, questionnaire, policy documentation, a video tour of your office, and reminders about those all important tasks such as updating the system with their bank details and emergency contact details.

Automate and interact with your HR tasks

Ripple® is the name of our trademarked workflow engine and can be used in two ways:

1. Automated ripple® - which as the name suggests, runs set tasks in the background without you having to do anything; and

2. Interactive ripple® – which gives your people a fully interactive digital experience when onboarding, offboarding and going through a change in circumstances i.e. a promotion or joining a new team.

Using Ripple®, you can delegate tasks to others automatically. Whether they need to update their details, check their holiday entitlement or upload vital documentation. This allows you to spend less time on HR admin and more time on the day job.
